BOOK NOW

Join Association of Black Humanists for an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the contribution of African humanists in Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.

Association of Black Humanists has chosen to celebrate Tai Solarin because he was a fearless humanist and atheist, a philanthropist, and a passionate human rights activist. He is an apt representation of a humanist. Tai Solarin suffered persecution and even jail for standing up to the regime in Nigeria. In the present day, as we can see with Mubarak Bala, the struggle continues.

The Tai Solarin Day Award 2022 for outstanding contributions to Humanism will be given to Mubarak Bala.

The compère for the evening will be Tavian Oladapo, and guest speakers at this event will include:

  • Amina Ahmed – Mubarak Bala's wife
  • Professor Anthony Pinn of Rice University
  • Dr Leo Igwe, Humanists International board member
  • Maachelle Farley, founder of Humanists Barbados
  • Roslyn Mould, Ex-President of Humanists Association of Ghana
  • Mandisa Thomas, founder of Black Non-Believers of the United States
  • Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of Humanists UK
  • and Corin Solarin, Tai Solarin's daughter

Join Association of Black Humanists for an exciting evening featuring cultural musical entertainment with Malick Kouyate on Kora and drums, and dining on a menu of authentic West African cuisine.

There are only 45 tickets available – book now to avoid disappointment.
